Percy Street will welcome a new business next year when the Golden Era Piano Museum opens its doors in Wellington.

The Golden Era Piano Museum is currently at Neville, near Blayney.

Earlier this month, owner Raymond Day-Hakker announced on social media that he was making the move to Wellington and the post reached many people with positive comments.

He said he was "flattered" and "humbled" by the positive response.

Mr Day-Hakker will make the move to Wellington and said he was looking forward to the new adventure.

"For many years I have been looking for a suitable place that's on the highway that spans from Sydney to Dubbo," he explained.

The coast was out of the questions due to the salt which can rust the musical instruments.

"These pianos and strings are all made of steel, they rust very quickly near the coast," Mr Day-Hakker said.

There are about 45 pianos in the collection that date as far back from the 1830's and 1918.

Mr Day-Hakkar hopes the museum inspires others to take up piano and has a few events planned.

He will also be making a few renovations to the building before it opens to make it look "schmick".

The museum at Neville receives visitors every weekend from people as far as Melbourne and Sydney and Mr Day-Hakker sees these music fans making their way to Wellington.
